When I was learning about radio production, one of the things I learned was to ensure when mikes are supposed to be off air they remain off.

In addition "..be careful what you say on radio..." one has to "..be careful what one says in the studio..." regardless whether the mikes are on or off. There have been situations where the mike has been 'accidentally' left on (or forgotten to be switched off).

"Commercial radio stations are increasingly directing their resources towards the removal of their intellectual property from third party aggregator sites and mobile apps. Typically, such sites provide ‘listen live’ links to station broadcasts or enable consumers to access stations’ podcasts. This diverts traffic – and ultimately advertising revenue - away from the stations’ own websites.” - Joan Warner yesterday, in the CRA's press release.

"Our submission does not propose restricted access to podcasts; podcasting has grown and thrived because of access via a multitude of third party podcast apps. The Australian radio industry is Australia’s leading investor in podcast creation and promotion, and has benefited from having its content being available everywhere." - Joan Warner today, above.

as a listener, i could not care less about these piddly little things.

for me, i want to access content in a way that works for me. for example, i do all my listening at home though a smart speaker - i'm not even sure i own a radio capable of picking up broadcast bands anymore.

One station i listened to had issues and was not available though the smart speaker. I didn't rush out and buy a radio to listen to it. I simply went to a competitor - in this case, a competitor from overseas.

With the prevalence of streaming it would be worth remembering that you are no longer competing with those in your local area - your now competing worldwide, and if i can't get the content i want, how i want it - i'll go elsewhere

This article has a lot about scripting however it's full of spelling mistakes. You would think if your job was writing you would know how to spell or at least use the correct spell checker such as English (Australian) instead of the American one. A Great Voice Over And The Last 5 Percent

Good Op Ed piece on Peter Hand. Oh my god, haven’t we all been there? Breaking out in a sweat, cursing ourselves for saying something and wondering what the consequences will be...if any.

One thing I DO know in this case is...I’ve been a friend and colleague of P. Hand for many years and I can safely say he is absolutely not a racist in any form. He’s a good bloke but has a habit of saying stuff he hasn’t thought through before saying it. But, as I say, haven't we all?

I would have not considered myself a 2ch listener as there was always a stigma associated with listening to this type of station, however since the appointment of Cherie, I have been listening on the 2ch app waiting for the change……changes in music, the content and the personalities has now shifted my attitude and my listening preference to CH……could this be the next big challenge for smooth & WS….. 2CH, Sydney’s new home of Classic Hits, launches a new line-up

I first met George not long after I started at 2BCR back in 1990. I found him to be funny, genuine and very easy going. He did some production work for me in the early days of my programs and even offered some friendly advice. Fast forward and even though he has made his final sign off that advice still rings true.

Always smiling, always with a laugh or a joke...the big grin will be sorely missed. Sleep well George.
